Oh awesome!! You’ve got one too. Niiiiiice. Cool

I own a lot of Seiko watches and this one is among my absolute favorites. I was stressing when Seiko stopped making them and they became harder to find them but luckily I found a super clean used example for a steal.

The SBDC077(?) is a great looking watch and I have been casually looking for one since Stickman first posted a picture of his in early June and the average price for a pre-owned one seems to be around $1.3K.

Nice Hamilton. I learned early on that I am drawn to the "field" style.

Yep, it’s the SBDC077. It’s a great watch! This was my first 62MAS style Seiko and it’s quickly becoming one of my favorites. The case shape is comfortable and attractive. I adore the dial and bezel insert both of which really seem to change the way they look depending on the lighting. I’m not typically a huge fan of green dial watches but I make an exception for the SBDC077.



toxophilus84, nice Hamilton! Does that watch have a screw down crown? 100m WR?

No screw down crown though it's rated for 100m WR.

That's a good looking Hamilton, sir!

If stickman decides to sell a particular one, perhaps I'll get it back. Wink




God bless America.

toxophilus84,

42mm case eh? I think I might have a Hamilton mod watch that uses the same case but is modified with a sterile dial and decorated 2824-2 (that’s not something you hear everyday…most of the modified watches are based on Seiko).





Is that a reference: H705450?

Sweet! H705450 is the case code, mine has the same though my model number is H70455533.

Nice Hamilton, Toxophilus! Clean example of a field watch. Smile

Stickman, if you ever decide to move that modded Hamilton, let me know. Cool

Just a heads up. The Christopher Ward July sale starts tomorrow. Prices up to 40% off on some models. Pro tip: Order in GBP rather than USD and you will save even more.

Maybe this will get the watch thread going again.



Very nice! Unfortunately for me, you stirred up my interest in Seiko GMTs and I think I've fallen for their latest version (5 Sport GMT Automatico Blu SSK003K1)!!! There's three color offerings, but the "Batman"? For less than $500.00??? Please tell me how I can resist?

Seiko launched a customizer for the Seiko5
Maybe they get into the customized release game?

https://5scustomize.seikowatches.com/custom/

This is what I came up with from their limited options:

I’m glad to see Seiko offering the option to customize your own watch. Seiko modders have been offering this service for a while now (mad mod world has been doing it for years now). There is quite a bit of joy to be had in being able to pick and choose exactly what parts you want on your watch. Bravo Seiko for realizing you were missing out on a very good thing. I really like Seiko’s watch configurator. Darn you Seiko! Big Grin The ice blue dial and blue hand option is so excellent!!

I suppose not everyone is willing to jump into Seiko watch modification on their own..there is a bit of a learning curve that can have some painful lessons along the way. You gotta give Seiko credit, just when it starts to get a bit stale they find a new way to pull you back in. Cool


This one has an almost Bavarian vibe to it thanks to the bezel insert.



I like that it lets you make a watch very close to the SBSA109 (140th anniversary edition Seiko 5 Sports) though I believe the texture on the dial might not be exactly the same.

Okay, fellas, I walked through the Seiko configurator and made one I liked. Thing is, I don't see an option to actually buy it. Am I overlooking something?




God bless America.

That's what I just posted a pic of! There's three different color options: Blue (Seiko 5 Sports Automatic GMT SKX Sports Style SSK003), black, and orange.

Further details on the watch and color options: https://timeandtidewatches.com...-gmt-for-under-1000/
